The Indian kick: DoshiLevien

"My beautifull backside" by DoshiLevien for Moroso

"My beautifull backside" by DoshiLevien for Moroso


the "mosaic" range for Tefal became a sucsess
DoshiLevien studio formed by Jonathan Levien and Nipa Doshi has been around for couple of years, and still they are counted among the “next generation”  designers, or “the designers of tomorrow”. This constant fascination with their design work is surely due to it`s freshness. I was surprised to see how they engage in economic, social and cultural transformation of modern India. I was furthermore bedazzled to find out how play-like and deeply investigated their work is. See the web site.
The “principessa” (Italian for “princess”) is among my favourites (below)
"Principessa" - a daybed consisting of many thin mattress layers
The idea for rounded cushions of “My beautifull backside” came form this picture from ancient Indian text “the garden of life”

belair - clean air at your home, courtesy of NASA technologies

As young french designers go, Mathieu is really worth checking out: his inventive “Bel Air” (above) is a NASA technology piece for home use – based on some sorts of plants that are proven to absorb toxic substances from air.  Also useful to remind us how polluted our immediate invironment is – each peace of new furniture and accesories brings more pollutants to our home. May well be used for topic of converastion 🙂

But new from Mathieu is the “Labo Brain” – surrounding that enhances our cognitive capabilites and stimulates our brain (!?)
